I haven't read anything else by this author, but this story was well written and well edited. I felt as if I had been dropped into the middle of a series, though, with this story. There were a lot of family members and neighbors introduced into the mix without having any real exploration of their relationships or characters and a lot of family history referred to and alluded to, as if there were other books exploring these themes. It made me feel as if the story could have been much more fleshed out, but wasn't. I would have liked to have learned a little more about the history of the H and h but it is never fully explained, just that they dated some. The details of the h's first marriage also are alluded to as being terrible, but very little information is given.
There is considerable time spent on exploring the sexual attraction between the H and h and how this makes the H angry with himself, and some time spent describing sexual encounters that, while steamy, didn't really add all that much to the story line. IMHO, the author would have been better served to explore her characters and their relationships and family history a good deal more which would have made a more substantial book and much more entertaining story with well developed characters and an interesting plot, rather than trying to keep it bare bones and throw in a bunch of sex scenes.
Heat factor hot.
